Sitting on each face it belies its hidden treasure,
inviting us to look only when prompted by second glances,
to enter deeper.
Or perhaps something encouraging returned,
a smile, a glance, a request for affirmation.
Taken and received from the heart,
beauty is the means we survive.
For food and shelter are needed,
but only sustain, not enrich.
Beauty illuminates all.
Here for a reason,
a gateway to love,
a light which shows God cares and loves.
